Designed to work with Windows Easy Transfer, a new feature on the Vista Operating System, the product sends files, music, pictures as well as settings from Windows XP computers to another PC running Windows Vista through a USB connection. An ideal solution for Windows users that don't want to lose documents or spend a large amount of time copying them to intermediary storage devices, the Smartlink Cable supports transfer rates up to 480 Mbps.
"Upgrading to Vista is practically inevitable as laptops and PCs continue to enter the market with the operating system already installed. IOGEAR is aiming to relieve the stress associated with this transition with our Smartlink Transfer Cable," said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR. "By simply transferring user accounts, documents and program settings via a USB port, our solution satisfies the file-sharing needs of those who continue to add Vista machines to their households or small offices."
